Man, I love fall food. Way better than summer food. Yes, I love a good cookout, grilling steaks, cold drinks and all that, but there's something about fall food. It's warm, its filling, its just plain yummy.
I have found so many awesome fall recipes lately, I don't know when I'll have time to try them all. I will certainly try, though! Here are a few of my favorites...
(PW's Pumpkin Smoothie looks DELISH, can't wait to try this)
(PW's carrot-thyme soup, never thought of this before!)
(PW's Caveman Pops, I am trying these this week!)
(this skillet recipe looks yummy!)
(these stuffed peppers look amazing! I would substitute the sausage for ground turkey to make it a bit healthier, though)
To celebrate Halloween, we carved a pumpkin the other night, well Ross did. This is his favorite part of Halloween and I enjoy watching him show the kids how to do it right. Its a great Halloween tradition we have and I was glad we did it, but things do not always go as planned. There was lots of whining and some time-outs in the midst of the carving, but there was fun mixed in too. And they love looking at it now that its carved and sitting out front! And I'll have to remember to tell Jude next year that he did not like the pumpkin seeds he tried to eat, and they were promptly spit out! :)
Tonight we will be Halloween parading with our small group and tons of others in a nearby neighborhood, having chili afterward and making smores with friends. The boys are excited about being pirates, saying "ARRGGHHHHH Me Maties, trick or treat!" and getting lots of candy. Hope you all have a safe, fabulous and fun Halloween!
